Enterprise at MTU Launches Spacecraft—and Careers
There’s a method to design, build, and launch student-built satellites. Michigan Tech’s Aerospace Enterprise Team sets itself, its members, and its spacecraft up for success with an organizational framework that keeps multi-year, multi-agency, high-budget projects moving along—including one spacecraft in orbit and two more in process.
“The student team has a leadership and management hierarchy that is self-sustaining,” says original and long-time advisor Brad King, the Richard and Elizabeth Henes Professor in Space Systems. “At any time, the current leaders are working to mentor their successors so we have continuity from year-to-year.”
